Kudos to Coach Brad...

He finally made someone throw up during a FAST training run!

Okay, she didn't really throw up because of the running ("she" being super-awesome teammate Becky). Although I bet the running was a contributing factor. It was, after all, rather hot and humid outside during our run this evening. There was also a prevalence of annoying gnats flying around everywhere (including into our eyes, noses and mouths). Those factors alone would be enough to make someone hurl.

In the true spirit of FAST, Becky did not let this puking incident slow her down. No, she kept on trucking, and finished her mile repeats strong. Talk about dedication!

Indeed, everyone on Team FAST did an awesome job tonight, especially considering the warm conditions. *High fives all around*

I now present The Workout for your perusal.... a 1 mile warmup, followed by 3 x 1 mile repeats at approximately half-marathon pace with 2 minutes rest between, and a 1 mile cooldown. Considering I just came off of a 22-miler, this run went rather well. I felt pretty strong for the most part, although I was pretty tired by the end of the last mile repeat. I ran the 2nd repeat a bit too fast, but it had more downhill, so maybe that's okay. The mile repeats are highlighted in blue on the graph below.

We then concluded our workout with Coach Bekah's Five-Minute Core Workout (yeeeouch!) and a quick review of the Thriller dance. Oh, you thought I was just kidding about us doing the Thriller dance? Shows what you know! I fully intend to capture Team FAST on video performing the dance before the season is over. *insert evil laughter here*

Peace. Love. Train.
